The ASF develops, shepherds, and incubates hundreds of freely-available, enterprise-grade projects that serve as the backbone for some of the most visible and widely used applications in computing today. Through the ASF's merit-based process known as "The Apache Way," more than 800 individual volunteer Members and 8,000+ code Committers across six continents successfully collaborate on innovations in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, Big Data, Build Management, Cloud Computing, Content Management, DevOps, IoT and Edge Computing, Mobile, Servers, and Web Frameworks, among other categories.

The Apache Software Foundation in 2021

Whilst 2020 has been quite a challenging year world-wide, the all-volunteer Apache community has demonstrated commendable strength, resilience, and commitment to our tenet of "Community Over Code":

  • 238 Apache Projects, sub-projects, incubating podlings, and their communities produced nearly 3,500 releases across dozens of categories.
  • We produced the "Trillions and Trillions Served" documentary that showcases how The Apache Way skyrocketed the ASF from overseeing a single project two decades ago to 350+ projects that produce $22B+ worth of software today.
  • Apache events moved online, and attracted our most diverse and greatest number of participants. ApacheCon@Home drew nearly 5,750 participants from more than 150 countries, who enjoyed 300+ sessions across 27 tracks. A staggering 1.5M+ viewers tuned in to the Apache Roadshow/China over its 2-day online event.
